The McDonough district school route takes us to the original location of this school on what is known as the Bliven-Sherman Road which is in the vicinity of Bowman Lake and runs from the McCall Road (Preston) west. There were two schools at this site; next week readers will be shown the schoolhouse in its present location. The photo, which is the earliest that the historian has in the McDonough school history files, shows students, more than likely, at the side of the original school. We regret that these students were not identified.
Mrs. Jennie Preston, to which this writer is great full for her extensive research, wrote the following paragraphs of the history of this school. This documentation is quoted verbatim as she documented it in 1976.
